You know Stranger Genius Nominee in Literature and journalist G. Willow Wilson for cocreating and writing Ms. Marvel, the first Muslim character that stars in her own comic series, and probably also for her memoir, The Butterfly Mosque, which chronicles Wilson's conversion to Islam. She joins Eisner Award-winning comic Faith Erin Hicks, who's coming in from Vancouver with The Stone Heart, the second installment of The Nameless City trilogy that's drawn comparisons to Avatar: The Last Airbender. The books are set in ancient China and center on two friends who are trying to stay friends, despite the fact that they were born to warring political factions. I'll let you work out all the relevant political themes swirling around this reading.
